World-Renowned Fiction Author to Deliver Reading

Fiction author and Truman alumnus Prajwal Parajuly ('06) will read from his work during a presentation at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 6 in Baldwin Hall Little Theater.

The event is part of the Clayton B. Ofstad reading series sponsored by the Department of English and Linguistics.

The son of an Indian father and a Nepalese mother, Parajuly’s writings have appeared in the New York Times, the Guardian, the New Statesman and on the BBC. “The Gurkha’s Daughter,” his debut collection of short stories, was shortlisted for the Dylan Thomas Prize in the U.K. and longlisted for The Story Prize in the U.S. “Land Where I Flee,” his first novel, was published in 2015 to international acclaim.

Parajuly splits his time between London and New York. He is currently the Clayton B. Ofstad endowed writer-in-residence at Truman.
